White's Oats, Northern Ireland's only oat miller and breakfast cereal producer is celebrating 175 years. A series of events are planned to mark what is: a significant milestone for the company as a follow up to the planning of this year's harvest/

White's has been locally milling and producing porridge oats and oat cereals since 1841 at its site in Tandragee, Co. Armagh and whilst farming has changed considerably over that time with larger machinery and new methods of working, the tradition milling process to produce a healthy and nutritious grain for porridge has remained largely the same.

White's takes great care and time over the growing and milling of its oats to ensure the highest quality standards and reasserts its provenance values. Its approach to quality has been endorsed by its considerable success at many national food awards and is testimony to the outstanding quality of its products which derives from months of hardwork leading up to harvest and right across the supply chain.

James Mathers, White's General Manager says, "we are immensely proud of our rich heritage and quality from farm to bow. We very much look forward to celebrating our 175th anniversary with a special birthday party coinciding with this year's harvest."
